Preparing for Surgery

  • Learning new eating and drinking habits
  • Undergoing lifestyle counseling to cope with changes
  • Beginning a supervised physical activity program
  • Quitting smoking

Understanding the Risks

It is important that you fully understand the risks involved with surgery so you can make an informed decision. While surgical complications are infrequent, all surgeries have risk. There is always potential for complications. Please talk to your surgeon about any questions you may have regarding your surgery.
